Located in the heart of Kendallville's largest city park, Bixler Lake Campground is dedicated to providing affordable, family-oriented camping experiences. Beautiful, wooded sites are available, and we accommodate group camping. Water and electrical hookups are provided, and a camp store offers firewood, ice, drinks and snacks. Showers and restrooms are handicapped accessible.
A wide variety of activities are available to the camper including fishing and swimming on 117 acre Bixler Lake. Modern playgrounds, ball diamond, nature trails, horseshoe, volleyball and many special events conducted by the campground coordinators complete the list of things to do.
During the camping season, accommodations can be made at the campground by phone at (260) 242-6898. At other times, the Park and Recreation office can relay requests at (260) 347-1064. Advanced reservations are required for holidays with non-refundable deposit.
